As an FYI I use it with TightVNC on a Windows box. This app is essentially VNSea without the screen display.

Mike, how quickly does this app respond when controlling pc mouse? Is there a delay of some sort, or is it instant?

It's very quick; I can't really see any delay. One issue is that right-clicking needs to be tweaked--it doesn't work right at the moment.

I am gonna try this in a training session next (projector environment).

Saw this yesterday a gave it a whirl. Not much use for Apple users IMHO, we got Apple Remote for Front Row/iTunes/Keynote which is much more cohesive. Definitely promising on the PC front however.

Cool thing for Mac users, you don't need to install VNC to use this, just enable Screen Sharing, and in the Remote APP, use your Mac admin log/pass to login. Built in VNC ftw :)

For the mac, in the remote app, what do I put in the address field? The I.P address?

I used the same log and pass used when you do a system update in leopard and it asks for your log/pass.

Sorry if I confused you, but screen sharing with built-in VNC is a Mac feature. For PC google search Tight-VNC. That should point you to a PC install file.
i downloaded it, but wasn't sure what to do after

What did you end up using for the VNC settings? Also, are you on leopard?
I'm on leopard, and I used the i.p address for the address. On the computer end, I enabled screen sharing, then went into computer settings and checked both boxes. Bada boom badda bing!
